Taiwan and Philippine Officials are on negotiation in hiring dairy farm workers

In a CNA report yesterday Nov.  6, Taiwan is negotiating with other countries that provide foreign workers and subsequently announced in April allowing dairy farms to hire a migrant workers on a trial basis.

Labor Minister Hsun Ming-chun said the move the government would take is part of the effort to help the country in the shortage of farms.

Hsu said the ministry launched a trial program in April to allow Taiwanese dairy farms to hire foreign skilled workers from developing economies to fill manpower gaps, even though no dairy farm workers had yet arrived in Taiwan  as their employment contracts have not been verified by their home countries.  Hsu also mentioned that representatives of Thailand and Indonesia visited Taiwan organized by the ministry to gain an understanding of Taiwan's work on Agriculture.  The Philippine representative also visited Taiwan, he added.

According to the ministry, in order to protect the welfare of a foreign worker their country must first have to verify their employment contract before it is allowed to work abroad.

Right now, Thailand has begun processing contract verification for workers who want to work on Taiwan's dairy farm, while Indonesia has allowed workers to take jobs in Taiwan's agricultural sector and they provided  a sample of the employment contract for review by the Labor Ministry.  A joint agreement between the Philippines and Taiwan has been reached by foreign workers at the dairy farm along with details they have discussed, the ministry said.  The ministry is also talking to the Vietnamese nation on this issue.

Currently, according to ministry data, Taiwan has more than 700,000 foreign workers.
